If you’ve been a HelloFresh customer for a while, you know we love using avocados in our recipes. They’re so healthy! One avocado can supply almost 100% of your daily recommended intake of fiber. They’re loaded with healthy monounsaturated and saturated fats,and they pack 35% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in vitamin K, and are good dietary sources of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Now that we’re adding them to a smoothie, they’re more delicious and accessible than ever!
